How easy and simple it is to paste a paper star on a piece of card stock to make a tree ornament! 
So I decided to start making them with the whole group. While the older children could learn to cut out 3D stars, the little ones can try to paste and decorate or probably will need help in pasting as well.
I got them some colourful card stock, ribbons, markers and paints. I was sure that somebody would like to use golden or silver paints and I had them too. Not to forget my good collection of scissors. Everything went on well. After much fun with the cutting we had a good number of awesome stars and some terrible ones too.

So that was a whole pack of card stock because each of them made about 6 or 8 of them not counting the ruined ones. Now how can we make good ones without the trials and a whole lot of paper bits to clean up. They looked awesome on our tree and here we could show you a few of them.

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example.We printed a few pictures of the Colosseum for guidance.Corrugated cardboard or cardboard box were used for the base and the main building. The cardboard cutout of a carton was easy to roll and secure, so it is better to choose a slightly softer version of cardboard. Paper tape was good to secure the shape and later painted so it doesn't show that much. Being a school project I prefer to use paints the student is more familiar with due to the time constraint so we used poster paints. For the base we covered a rectangular piece of cardboard with a green sheet of crepe paper.

I must say that it turned out impressive for a quick project! The best part was when Manya carried it home with a big smile!


Easy step by step drawings are always a favorite in my class. Since we chose tailor bird this week I needed to present a step by step instruction as well.

So here we are with 'a not a very easy step by step drawing', according to my 1st graders :)
And a few photos of the common tailor birds  visiting our yard.

Such cute birds aren't they :)

Below are artworks made by the children:

Well, I'm sure we'll post more tailor bird artworks shortly as I see them coming...

Enjoy a beautiful spring weekend!
